In case of duplicate questions, the author will decide the winner. Today's winner is: Stephen Hunt, 10, Salt Lake City, Utah If you were to draw a picture of a spider and its web, how would you show the web? I would probably look like a whee with spokes and smaller ant smaller circles inside. Yet this kind of web, spun by the fa miliar garden spider, is only on< of many, many different kinds o; webs created by various spiders In fact, no other animals use silk in as many ways as do the spiders. This silk is manufacture ed in certain glands in the abdomen of th spider. The silk is forced through many tiny holes from the spinning organs at the tip of the abdomen. It comes out as a liquid which becomes solid , on contact with the air. But even the same spider produces many different kinds of silk- The silk used in making the web is sticky, so it can catch prey. The strong supporting strokes of the web are not sticky —and this is why a spider can run up and down its own web without getting stuck! The non sticky spokes are a safe path for it to follow. But did you know that one of the best known — and dreaded — spiders, the black widow, doesn't spin a pretty web at all? The black widow's web is a jumble of threads going every which way! Her are some other interesting kinds of webs spun by spiders. The trap-door spider makes a ;ottjelike burrow.''There is a lidlike opening at the top. It fits the burrow snugly and is .disguised by sticks aw) dirt. When an insect enters thli burrow it's realty like falling into I trap). The European water spider spins one of the meet interesting webs. It buHds a bell-shaped home 1 r— ff entirely under water. The spide fills .this with air brought from the surface. Here she lays the egg and rears the young' until the; can build for themselves. There is an Australian spide; which doesn't spin a web but in stead spins a long thread of sill with a wad of shiny sticky materl al on the end. This is twirled so that it flickers in the moonlight A moth comes along, gets caugh in the sticky mass and the spider simply draws up the thread ant eats the moth!
